What some foreign students at Moorhead have difficulty understanding

In an interesting twist on the international student story, assistant professor of English Amy Watkin of Concordia College in Moorhead tells The Concordian student paper that the system fails to help foreign students enough to understand American plagiarism and academic integrity standards:

““I’ve found that almost without exception, whatever continent you’re talking about, the students are coming with a very different experience of citation and research, source use and plagiarism. … We are quickly reaching a point where accepting a large number of students with a large number of language issues becomes unethical because we don’t have the system in place to help them. I keep telling everyone it feels like we could do something great rather than putting band-aids on the problem wherever it appears.”
